Information following the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning GroupsDate posted: 7th July 2017
On 6th July 2017, the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups met in public at South Ribble Council's Civic Centre.
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are NHS organisations that plan and buy health and healthcare for their communities. The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (JCCCG) is a meeting of the CCGs in Lancashire and South Cumbria and will be responsible for making decisions about any future proposals referred to it by the CCGs. Decisions that will be referred if they require a Lancashire and South Cumbria approach, but most decisions about healthcare will continue to be taken locally.
The committee is held in public and chaired by Phil Watson CBE, who is independent of the health organisations. Following the meeting there will be an opportunity for questions from the public to the Committee.
Local TV station That's Lancashire requested to film the committee which was permitted to allow for complete transparency. Any film clips will be shared on this website.
